New Year’s Day Rose Parade set to go despite virus surge


PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The Rose Parade and Rose Bowl college football game between Ohio State and Utah are set to go forward on New Year’s Day despite surging cases of COVID-19, which forced the cancellation of the 2021 parade. The 133rd edition of the Pasadena, California, tradition is scheduled to feature actor Levar Burton as grand marshal, 20 marching bands, 18 equestrian units and dozens of floats reflecting the theme of “Dream. Believe. Achieve.” In a change due to soaring infections, the Kaiser Permanente health care network says its float will not not have 20 front-line medical workers riding or walking alongside.
